“We did this! It looks so good. I am just so proud of us. We were newbies at all of this and we just had the best time. It was so therapeutic and fun to have something to walk away with that you made yourself!”

“I just completed a five week introductory pottery class and can't recommend Handmade Studio TN enough for a creative, relaxing outlet. Amber, studio manager, is an excellent teacher. Very patient and thorough with those of us with zero pottery experience. Each week I looked forward to spending 2.5 hours at the studio. I made some new friends and think I have a new hobby! So good!"
